It is really easy to make a Strawberry Smoothie. Take some strawberries, sprinkle with sugar, and blend with yoghurt and ice. Add some raspberries to pretty up the drink and voila, breakfast!
Erm, you may be wondering, why am I blogging about a simple thing like Strawberry Smoothie? Well, not really, I was just showing off this very old blender that my mother-in-law bought in the late 70's. It still works really well, and has separate attachments for juicing fruits. The cover for the glass jug doubles as an orange squeezer. I love the graduated shades of yellows and oranges. Made in Japan, by Sharp. Now how many electrical appliances are made in Japan today?
And here is another indispensable and treasured tool that MIL has been keeping all this time. This peeler, also of 20 over years vintage, is still very sharp. Orange seemed to be the shade of the 70's. The handle provides a sturdy and comfortable grip and peeling fruits and vegetables is so breezy. Close inspection of the logo reveals a nicely detailed profile of an American Indian in feathered headdress.
